This is Our Vision
Mt. Helm Baptist Church, which exists to the glory of God so that through us changed lives can change the world, seeks to become an intentionally intergenerational, family-friendly church that changes lives through Gospel witness and emphasis on the work of the Holy Spirit. A leading congregation in our state’s capital city, Mt. Helm connects the seminary to the sanctuary, and the sanctuary to the streets and suites. Said differently, we desire to be a safe space for hard questions and heart issues, while also being committed to social transformation, all within the scope of biblical Christianity and holistic Spirit-filled discipleship.
We will be unashamedly Christian in an increasingly unbelieving world and unapologetically black in a yet racist one. As our hearts and arms are open to embrace all cultures and peoples, we do it without sacrificing our moral and theological convictions.
Because our history is multi-layered, we choose to be diverse in many ways. We will be known as a downtown church with passionate worship, anointed preaching, radical prayer, where soul salvation, mind renewal, and prophetic justice work together in our Gospel witness. Developing leaders, making an impact in the community, and cultivating transformative spirituality will be our specialty. Lastly, we hope to be a holy place where elders and “the young” learn from each other, where traditions and technology aren’t enemies, and where religion can be thought through, felt, and motivational for service in the community. In a word, Mt. Helm aspires to be the kind of church that models to our city, state and nation what beloved community can and should be, by the grace of God and in the power of the Holy Spirit to the glory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
